"How beautiful it is to do nothing, and to rest afterward."

"Everyone carries a part of society on his shoulders," wrote Ludwig von Mises, "no one is relieved of his share of responsibility by others. And no one can find a safe way for himself if society is sweeping towards destruction. Therefore everyone, in his own interest, must thrust himself vigorously into the intellectual battle."

Want To Stop the Gun Violence?
Here's what can be done to end gun violence. It is very simple:
1. Repeal the 2nd Amendment.
2. Confiscate all existing guns in the country.
Yes, I know... fat chance.
But it is the only possible way. And no liberal is proposing it. Of course, the criminals will still have guns because they will not give them up willingly. And, I suspect not all gun owners will either. What will happen is that most gun owners will refuse to disarm because the government wants them to. Possibly because the government wants them to.
I write this because the president is on the TV calling for legislation to curtail gun violence. And taking potshots at the Republicans in Congress because they will not pass the gun laws he wants. So why doesn't he just push for a repeal of the 2nd Amendment? Because he knows that will never happen, just as every liberal anti-gun advocate knows it too.
Yet none of them are even trying to do it. Cowards.
